An indispensible and precise scale I use when brewing and roasting coffee.
Positive Product Points
This digital scale is precise down to the single gram or 1/10 ounce. The capacity is up to 6 pounds or 3000 grams. Of course, this also measures other foods and postage weight just as easily as coffee.
Negative Product Points
I suppose one could find fault with the small size of the digital display or of the round glass top, but I personally find the compact size and light weight to be an asset.
I use this when measuring coffee to roast of brew. My rule of thumb for the number of grams of coffee to use when brewing is ounces of water plus another half. That means 20 ounces of water requires 30 grams of coffee; 30 ounces of water gets 45 grams of coffee, etc.
The scale can zero out with anything on top of the glass so I zero it out with the empty roasting chamber of my FreshRoast+ coffee roaster, then put in 70 to 75 grams of green coffee beans. For amounts this small, one really cannot go with a cheap spring scale which, if you're lucky, may allow you to guess to the nearest 10 grams.
The seller on ebay was very efficient to work with. Search "Escali scale" on ebay to find.
